What impressed you positively?

"The students, and how happy they were, facilities are pretty new, and the hospitals are all within the same campus as the school" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Parts of the building where students have labs, classrooms, are surprisingly old looking when compared with the remainder of the building. Class size is large, at 204. Didn't get to see Froedert & Children's Hospitals, even though they like to talk about how wonderful they are." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Make sure to get to school no later than 11:30am and get your voucher for lunch, and then eat as soon after that so that you are ready to go at 12:30. Also, meet with other interviewees at Baggage #3 at MKE for the shuttle ride at 8:00pm or earlier. Also, there were 64 interviewees in my group - which was pretty unique in my experience." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I took the shuttle on Thursday night, which was fun because I met about 20 other applicants at the airport. The social that night was great too, since it was totally student run, and we got to meet and talk with students of all years fairly candidly. The next day, I ate lunch with students and interviewees at about 11:30, and met in the conference room at 12:30. The admissions director gave a quick presentation. Then half the group went for their interviews while the other half had a financial aid presentation. Then we had a 30 min tour of the school. After that we had our interviews, which went pretty well. With a such a large interview group, I expected it to be a little chaotic, but it was actually the most organized interview day that I've been to yet. I was very impressed with the school and moreso with the students." Report Response
